It is all in the eyes; they express your feelings, and the skin surrounding the eyes is where the first signs of ageing usually set in. Bags under the eyes, wrinkled and drooping layers of skin on the eyelids, as well as hooding and sagging eyebrows give the entire face a tired, aged or angry expression.
Eyelid surgery can brighten the face and restore a more youthful appearance by removing loose, sagging skin or by modifying puffy, bulging bags of fat from the upper or lower lids. Fat fillers can also be used as an integral part of the rejuvenative procedure to replace lost volume that causes hollowing around the eyes. Eyebrow position can suggest sadness, anger, confusion and alertness. When eyebrows droop, a sad, angry or tired appearance often results. Surgery can be used to address this issue—eyebrow lifts can be performed directly in the edge of the hairline of the brow if the brow is thick, indirectly through an eyelid incision when performing cosmetic eyelid surgery or at the hairline.
